In order to keep new scores and acquisitions easier to find lets post them all in this thread.
Here's my find of today, GEM Micromatic Bullet-tip or Flying wing Single Edge twist to open safety razor.
This razor is in good condition, some scratches and the handle has some plate loss as has the head:
And another item I won from the same seller on that well known auction site, advertised as GEM Push button Single Edge Safety Razor:
Preceded by this one, as I really needed 001_unsur) one of those lovely boxes:
My first SE razor, identified as a 1912:
And finally, my second one which is a 1924:
And I found out that my favorite vendor on the Bay had a couple of nice items up for sale today also!
A Clog Pruf, if identified correctly.
And a GEM jr.
A few coins go a long way in SE land!
Finally snagged a Damaskeene on the 'Bay. Now I just need to find a Jewel/Streamline and I'll be set. The seller thought it was a hoot that I was planning on shaving with this. Apparently she'd never heard of B&B.
Here are some pics:

I also have another Gem 1912, but the head's smaller & a different style handle.
Are there different "sub-models" within the 1912 Model?
I think alex2363 knows, maybe we should ask.
From my own starting collection I can confirm that there are more than one style handle.
I have the same ornate or chain link handle, and a pretty similar handle as the other one also.
Whether this reflects an other model or just a handle change over the years, I do not know.
I found this single edge 7 0 clock on ebay for a nice price so i had to have it, Plus it uses desplined blades just like
the early autostrops do
its in better condition than it looks, plus i have now centered the blade properly.
The 1912 (Brooklyn), gem junior, and Damaskeene are considered to be in the same lineage, or 'sub models' if you will.
Picked this one up the other day.
EverReady 1914 "little lather catcher" complete with box on eBay. Excellent condition and shaves like a boss!
I just purchased this on E-bay.
Looking forward to playing with it.
I went to a couple of antique stores today and found this GEM 1912. Looks like it's in decent shape. It even had a GEM Damaskeene blade loaded. Anyone ever tried shaving with one of these?
This old beauty just arrived. Can anyone identify it for me? It looks like a very early Ever-Ready travel razor. And where should I look for info about cleaning it up.
Here is my first SE razor...I had no clue as to what I bought.
Good choice. Damaskeene's are excellent. Great condition too!
